as you may or may not know, my quest for the perfect sofa morphed into an obsession with finding a good daybed or sleeper.
here's how it went down; i got tired of looking at sofas that i loved, that didn't fit my space and committed to one that was right for where i am now. yes, i gave up the fantasy for something that works. and yes, i understand how i should translate this line of thinking to my personal life.
once i bought my sofa, my obsessive, fantasy-hungry mind had to latch onto something else, and the daybed for my office was the obvious next step.
a daybed is a strange thing. the more classic and midcentury designs, are elegant and maximize space, but are often uncomfortable, and don't offer a good sleeping set up for a two people or anyone over 5' 9". do i plan to host a 6' plus person on my daybed regularly? does this person even exist? well, no. but i'm convinced i should consider all aspects of comfort and form before i drop a few thousand dollars on a bench.
the next option is the sleeper sofa. i find most of the contemporary styles well--ugly. there are a few exceptions that jump out, like the sleepers at dwr , the ufurl by lissoni and sleepers at blu dot (all pictured below).
i haven't found the right match yet, but don't worry, it'll take me a little time to get tired of looking.
i've been away from my computer for a month for a much needed vacation.
i just got back from a trip to thailand. i'm looking through some of my photos today and really missing the intensity of color over there.
i'll post some more detailed images this week, but for now, here is a taste of the colors throughout the country.
bought these fabulous vintage pieces a few weeks ago and went in to see the progress of the new upholstery--they are looking super cute!
the mccobb is getting treated to some touch up on the legs and a new blue velvet coat.
we discovered that the smaller chair is pretty special piece, all the way down to its custom blown rubber foam.
they don't make it like this anymore, it's great quality. but sadly these seats were not in great shape.
so, the foam and fabric will change. this little one is going to get this beautiful silk and wool.
Darling, This is really a beautiful place and I can enjoy being here
knowing that the war is over and will probably be home soon I hope.
Won't be able to write a letter today. O.K.? All my love, always.
